BEAUMONT – As a result of multiple fatal traffic collisions in the recent weeks, the San Gorgonio Pass California Highway Patrol Area has created a public service announcement to discuss the benefits of wearing seatbelts. Lack of use or improper use of seatbelts was a significant factor in fatal collisions since Jan. 1, resulting in 10 people who have been killed.
In the video, the commander references nine fatalities and one person with major injuries; however, Aug. 22, one person succumbed to their injuries as a result of collision and being unrestrained.
Here are a couple of key messages regarding seatbelts.
It only takes three seconds to buckle up, and those three seconds could literally save a life. They will also keep drivers from getting a ticket and a fine.
